Mrs Trump's arrival in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, was therefore unsurprisingly subdued. Mrs. Trump is on a five-day tour with planned stops in Malawi, Kenya and Egypt. She arrived Tuesday in the West African country of Ghana.

Streets were blocked for her convoy to pass to the clinics and hospitals in Accra with Ghana's First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo to distribute toys and hold babies for photo moments.

On Friday night, Hedi Slimane debuted his first collection at Celine (note the lack of acute) and in doing so obliterated everything the former designer Phoebe Philo stood for.

The first lady on Friday tweeted: "Looking forward to spreading the message of #BeBest & representing the #USA as I travel to #Africa next week", and hashtagged the four countries.

In June, she made a surprise visit to Texas to visit detained children at the Mexican border, wearing a jacket emblazoned with the words "I really don't care".

The result left PSG on three points from two games after their opening 3-2 defeat by Liverpool, who visit Napoli in the group's 1900 GMT kick off.

"Mrs. Trump has always envisioned her first worldwide trip would be [to] Africa", she told CNN. The first lady will also highlight the role Washington plays in helping each country, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), which helped to coordinate the trip. "Africa is so attractive, the most attractive part of the world, in many ways", he added.

Before this week, the phrase "Trump trip to Africa" might have meant a big-game hunting excursion with Donald Jr. and Eric. The mother of a 12-year-old son, child welfare is an important issue for Trump, who launched her advocacy initiative "Be Best" earlier this year.

Trump had long planned this trip. She tweeted that the campaign was going "international".

She would also be making a donation to the facility.
